    Are my images compressing?

    I use a simple and free tool available online called ImageOptimizer.net and when I optimize them, they turn out being less kbs than before, however, when I upload them to my website and save them from there, they appear to be as big as before in the Properties menu.

    Is it supposed to be like that?

    This is not a SEO question. Unless they reduce the physical size i.e 600px x 400px to 300px x 200px. then all they are doing is compressing the file. You should see a difference in file size from the original to the compressed version. If you want to reduce the photo, you need to use a different tool.

    A good open source tool that works for modifying image file types, and rather in depth compression options GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is pretty useful.

    When you compress any image for SEO purpose, it will be reduced in size and the compression may affect the resolution but that does not mean it is supposed to appear smaller in size.
